The KEUNE Foundation has reached an important milestone, amassing $1 million dollars in donations to the charity, all raised by salons and hairdressers around Australia and New Zealand. The money goes towards families with children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.

Since launching in 2005 the Keune Foundation has operated with the sole goal of providing financial assistance to Australian families who experience financial and emotional stress when one of their children is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. The charity was established in 2005 by Hans and Theresa van der Velden, owners of KEUNE Haircosmetics, and has since contributed to medical treatments, recovery and sustaining these children and their families.

Money is raised by 10 cents from every KEUNE Tinta Color and So Pure Color purchased by professional hair salons throughout Australia using KEUNE colour being donated to the charity. Local in-salon events and charity campaigns run by KEUNE salons supplement these funds as well.

These efforts have now officially raised $1 million nationally through these Australian and New Zealand salons, helping over 650 families in need.

Congratulations to the brand and the salons in this incredible feat!
